What are you getting the old man for Father's Day?

60 inches of this ridiculous ethernet uber-cable costs $500

I’ve been giving this a lot of thought in the last few weeks and I’m not sure what to get my dad. The parentals don’t need a TV because they just got a 52-inch Samsung plasma, so that one is out the door. Although, he might want something for the office. This 32-inch Westinghouse 720p, W3223, set isn’t too shabby and for $699 that’s not a bad deal. Heck, I might even get myself one at that price. It looks mighty fancy and comes with two HDMI ports and ATSC/NTSC/ClearQAM tuners.

I know it’s Father’s Day, but I think my mom would feel jilted if she wasn’t included in the decision process of what to get him. I’m not so sure they’re ready for a Blu-ray player, but maybe a Vudu would be good for them. It’s easy to use. Actually, a caveman could figure it out. And the new wireless adapter makes it even more enticing.

If my dad were a gamer an Xbox 360, PS3 or Wii would be considered. A handheld like the PSP or DS Lite would be good choices as well. But what games would get him? I think Gran Turismo 5 would be a good choice. Yeah, I think so. He’s keen on baseball, so MLB 08: The Show would be a good call. I’ve always liked the Hot Shots Golf series, so I think I’d get him that for a PSP. A lot of the games I play on the Xbox 360 are a little too violent for his taste. Maybe you guys have some suggestions. I hear Mario Kart for the Wii is great and I know the Wii Fit would be fun for both parentals. I can’t really think of anything off the top of my head for the DS, though. Thoughts?

That’s about all I can think of right now. He’s set with his laptop and my brain is fried from lack of sleep over here in Berlin. What about everyone else?
